Finally, an update…haha…I apologize in advance for my absence the last couple days. The Need For Speed Shift 2 event was this past weekend and I’ve been busy going through a couple hundred photos from that, as well as some personal photography work for a family member, and the update you’re about to see. The coverage of the NFS Shift 2 event is pretty good actually, even though it was a small event. I had to go snap some pics for Honda Tuning to cover that event for them so I was all about taking pictures that day.
Anyways, for today, we’re going to take a look at a car that you should all be familiar with by now. The owner is also a very close and dear friend of mine and that guy is known to many of you as Salem from Phaze2. His TSX graced the cover of Honda Tuning a couple years back and unlike many of the enthusiasts these days, he’s actually held onto his car and continued it’s evolution. I know the car well because Salem and I constantly talk about it and he brings the car out to almost every event. When it received it’s feature in Honda Tuning it was actually still in it’s beginning stages. Since then the car has taken on quite the transformation. It still carries the J’s Racing theme when it comes to engine modifications but now it also has the rare J’s Racing front fascia for the Accord Euro-R. It’s also seen a number of different sets of wheels because Salem has yet to find a wheel that he is truly satisfied with. The photos below show the TSX on polished BBS LM’s that were borrowed from our friend Sam from AS1, since Salem recently sold his white TE37s and was in need of a set of wheels to roll on for the Need For Speed Shift 2 event. Salem’s been looking for new wheels for a couple weeks now and we’ve been going through different sets and calling different places to see what is available. What’s made things increasingly difficult has been the tragic events that have happened in Japan. The earthquake and tsunami has really affected things coming in and out of Japan so we’re looking at much longer wait times if he decides to order something from overseas. When he finally decides on a new set of wheels we will go out and get some new photos for you guys but today, you guys will see the Phaze2 TSX on BBS LMs. It’s not a bad look, definitely different from what we’re used to seeing on his car but hey, it’s nice to switch things up every now and then to see what works and what doesn’t….
It was kind of an impromptu shoot since we didn’t really plan it out and shot it near an area by some random strip club by Salem’s place. It was also dark as shit too and basically pitch black when we shot so it was pretty sketchy. There aren’t too many shots because we didn’t spend too much time there being that it was an area we weren’t too familiar with…Enjoy.

A “behind-the-scenes” shot I guess you can say…
Mikeyyyy is holding his iPhone up because that was pretty much the only source of light that we had since we shot late at night in complete darkness…
Great shots as usual!
Sick car, great shots!!!
Ahh shit… Crack kills son!!! (last pic) lol
nice shots, those LM’s don’t look half bad on the TSX.
I <3 Salem
